The women from Mongolia have been such a great part of our institute. We are excited for you to meet them!

Otgonzul is studying renewable energy engineering. She would like people to know that Mongolia is a developing country with an up-and-coming younger generation. She would like to tell her younger self that even when problems arise, she should be persistent and face them with courage. “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity!” She also loves to eat cheesy foods, especially pastas!

Bolor is studying international economic relations in Ulaanbaatar. If she could give her younger self advice, she would say, “You are stronger and smarter than you realize. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. You just have to persevere through the hardships and stand tall.” She would like people to know that though Mongolia is associated with a nomadic lifestyle, it is not barbaric. She is from a metropolitan city and the people there are very peaceful. Her favorite food is brownies!

Uyanga (Melody) is studying financial management. She says that many people assume that she is serious and quiet, but when you get to know her she opens up. She loves to eat spicy food and pasta. She says that Mongolia is developing very rapidly. If she could give her younger self advice, she would say, “Try new things, explore yourself, don’t be afraid to fail, meet new people, try to see the world from a different angle. And read a lot of books!”

Javkhlan (Jane) is studying international business management and describes herself as imaginative, driven, and passionate. She says that her beliefs and values drive her life. She wishes she could say this to her younger self: “Learn as many things as possible. Be fearless. You can do anything if you put your energy toward it. You are that strong. Don’t let anyone tell you that you are less than this.” Her favorite food is cake (vegan of course)!

Stay tuned for more updates from these talented and passionate women!
